EPWPCOA Public Education Committee members are committed to helping our membership with public outreach in our respective communities and for providing resources and understanding for communities looking to learn more about our most valuable resource – WATER!

EPWPCOA members are a valuable resource to our local communities and to each other. Our members participate in various aspects of the water resources industry(s). Our members are available for treatment plant tours, school events, and community events. Some tools that the EPWPCOA Public Education Committee can offer, include:

  • Enviroscape Models (see pics below): The EnviroScape® environmental education models show water pollution and prevention through shared responsibility. A series of portable models dramatically demonstrate water pollution concepts and their prevention. EnviroScape® effectively communicates our shared responsibility for the environment to people of all ages, languages and cultures. Our models are engaging and effective, as they create a real sense of understanding through experience and hands-on demonstration. EPWPCOA can provide a watershed/nonpoint source runoff model OR a drinking water/wastewater treatment model. To request access to use the Enviroscape model(s) please email epwpcoa@ptd.net
  • EPWPCOA promotional items
